  • Montalcino Wine Tasting 1-Day Tour from Umbria

    10. Montalcino Wine Tasting 1-Day Tour from Umbria

    On this 1-day tour you discover the famous wine of Montalcino. Brunello di Montalcino wine is made from Sangiovese, a grape traditionally called “Brunello” in Montalcino. The wine must spend at least 2 years in wooden casks and at least 4 months of aging in the bottle. The retention period in the bottle extends to up to 6 months for the reserve that comes on the market a year later. Discover the history of Montalcino. The hill upon which Montalcino sits has had settlers since the Etruscan times. Its first mention in historical documents in 814 AD suggests that there was a church here in the 9th century, most likely built by monks associated with the nearby Abbey of Sant'Antimo. The population grew suddenly in the middle of the 10th century, when people fleeing the nearby town of Roselle took up residence in the town.
